Coming Soon! Art Scavenger Hunt

"Linger Longer Loo" by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (detail)

“Linger Longer Loo” by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (detail)

The Case of the Missing “Linger Longer Loo”

Artist: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
Title: Linger Longer Loo
Date: 1898
Medium: Lithograph

The year is 1898 and artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is distraught. Henri’s lithograph, Linger Longer Loo, is no longer lingering in its beautiful golden frame. Where has it gone? To the loo? Doubtful.

The artist needs you to solve the mystery. The police have five suspects. Read about each suspect, use hints in your field notes guide, and scour the city of Belleville for clues. Make it to the last location and submit your verdict to win.

As you begin your quest, we leave you these final words from the great Sherlock Homes: “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”

How to Play

To help you in your quest for the stolen artwork, you will need to read carefully the characters’ information, hints in the field notes when applicable, and clues at each Belleville site. Based on the information provided, one character should be eliminated as a suspect at each site unless otherwise noted in your journal. Use your field notes journal to help keep track. By the final location you will have two suspects left that could have done it, but which one? At that location you will find a box in which to submit your final answer.

Good luck!


The object of the game is to discover the answer to these three questions:
1. Who did it?
2. Where is the artwork?
3. Why did the person take it?


The mystery begins Tuesday, October 4, and will continue through Monday, October 31. All answers must be submitted at the final destination by October 31 at 3 p.m.
Please note: some clues may require additional research and some clue sites may have specific hours of operation. To find that information, you will need to go to that location’s website. Family members of staff from participating organizations are unable to play. Open to all ages. One entry per person.
